He is considered by friends andfoes alike to be one of the most important money managers of alltime. Robertson and his ‘Tigers’ have forever changed theway money is managed and the way hedge funds are used by investorsaround the world."
–From the Introduction

Take one look at Julian Robertson and you’ll quickly seethat he’s a man who aims to be the best at whatever he does.Robertson’s skills at finding opportunities to exploit in thecanyons of lower Manhattan and in markets around the globe arelegendary. The numbers speak for themselves: Tiger Management grewfrom $8.8 million under his management in 1980 to more than $21billion in 2000.

Written by hedge fund expert Daniel Strachman, Julian Robertson:A Tiger in the Land of Bulls and Bears is the first in-depth lookat one of the most successful and well-known hedge fund managers ofour time. Following Robertson from his days as a Salisbury, NorthCarolina, youth to his domination of Wall Street, this engagingbook traces his inspired climb to the top, and his oftencontroversial tenure at the helm of one of the most successfulhedge fund organizations in the world.

In the pages of this book, you’ll learn aboutRobertson’s ability to find and execute trades in the equity,fixed-income, and commodities markets. You’ll see how he wasable to stay the course in the copper market during an incrediblyvolatile time in the market and reap huge rewards from his trades.Robertson believes there’s no place for second best and iswilling to do whatever it takes to win. At Tiger, winningwasn’t everything–it was the only thing.

Filled with candid interviews with Robertson, his colleagues,and his peers, Julian Robertson: A Tiger in the Land of Bulls andBears uncovers both the personal world of Julian Robertson and thetrading strategies and investment style that have made him a legendin his own time. You’ll be there to watch how Robertson’sdetermination, financial skills, and vision allowed him to getTiger Management up, running, and into the game. But you’llalso be there as missteps and market malaise led Robertson to shutthe fund complex down in 2000.

While exploring this legendary fund manager’s role in thedevelopment and popularity of hedge funds, you’ll also learnhow the culture at Tiger Management bred other successful fundmanagers known as Cubs, who will continue to impact the way moneyis managed for many years to come. Today, the Tiger Cubs arebelieved to manage more than ten percent of all assets allocated tohedge funds around the world.
